    Assuming, of course, that there will be a 2014 AMAPR season.

    Apparently, Yamaha is proceeding under that assumption.

    Cam B. on the R1 Superbike...

    I hope for Cams sake they have a season and it gets him a ticket to Europe.

    AMA SBK is still around? I have not watched ONE race in 2013, and I'm pretty hardcore fan who wakes up at 3am to watch GP.

    With Herrin to Catterham 2 someone had to come up to follow Hayes around (if his bike finishes)...

    So isnt that broadcasting deal with NBC for next season too ?

    I just saw some chatter on Facebook that Danny Eslick was apparently dropped by Jordan Motorsports. That should mix things up a bit.

    They're not going to have much of a field if this keeps up.

    Soup is "reporting" that the Jordan team will not continue.

    That is a big loss, and not just in terms of a well funded team, but moreso in the exposure that having MJ involved brings to the series.

    Is there any evidence of a 2014 season to be out of?

    This is going to get ugly quick. You can feel it.

    NASCAR promoters are having attendance issues, many of the tracks are reducing their seating capacity and stock car teams are having trouble attracting sponsors. I'm sure the money flowing to the home office in Daytona is dwindling. If Jim France didn't pour money into the series in the good times, he is definitely not going to bankroll it in the current economic environment.

    The next few months will tell the tale. There may be a lot of van-man operations, like the old days. At least the flat track guys won't notice much difference. :lol3

    Maybe some of us on AdvRider should band together and purchase the title sponsor rights to the series. I'll throw $20 at it, a few others and we should be in business. Who's with me? :deal

    Considering National Guard was throwing $2.25 million to sponsor Hayden we"ll need a lot of inmate donations.
